Clontarf Castle goes Green with Hospitality Eco-label

04 Feb 2014

Very well done to Clontarf Castle Hotel who have set a target to reduce their environmental footprint and is on the path to best practice within the hospitality sector.

This Eco-label was achieved as part of The Green Hospitality Programme, the only Irish developed environmental certification standard for the hospitality sector. This title is recognised both nationally and internationally as a standard that allows members to achieve good environmental performance and allows visitors to choose "Greener" hospitality businesses knowing that defined criteria are being implemented and monitored.

General Manager of the hotel, Mark Long said “Clontarf Castle Hotel is committed to environmental leadership within our community. We are dedicated to working towards sustainable tourism in Ireland. The Green Hospitality Programme is a welcome one as we believe guests are becoming more environmentally responsible, without wanting to reduce the quality or enjoyment of their visit”.

Clontarf Castle Hotel achieved their Eco-label by taking part in the voluntary Green Hospitality Programme and developing and implementing an Environmental Action Plan focusing on energy, waste and water management. The castle’s main aim is to reduce carbon emissions by reducing energy consumption, preserve water resources and minimise waste production.
